Bombarded with choices!

This place has it all in Japanese food. The variety of food choices are compacted into this place. They tastes good too and the prices are reasonable I would love to come back again. But the place is a bit cramp and need a renovation then this place would be a number #1 Japanese food court.

If you love Japanese food, this place is a must. You can pretty much have anything from sushi to ramen to chicken katsu and rice. The food is fresh, tasty and very well priced. You can get a glass of beer during happy hour for $1!! Hubby was happy thing here whilst we shopped.

I just returned from a vacation in Japan and craved for more Japanese culture so we went to Shirokiya at 5:45 pm one evening. Definitely no "irashaimase" welcomes here. In fact when I cashed out, I encountered a very complacent cashier - I said thank you multiple times hoping she would acknowledge me as in Japan - none here too.... More

So, Shirokiya was the default shopping lunch of my childhood-- once Patti's Chinese Kitchen closed-- :( So, I have fond memories of sharing a meal with my mother at Shirokiya after an epic Liberty House visit (also, sadly, a thing of the past). While this is still a great place for a quick bite, the quality varies quite a bit... More

This is a food court (separate from the main food court at Ala Moana mall in Honolulu. It is cramped with limited seating but you cannot beat the variety of food or the price point options. I had the butterfish with rice and it was sublime; and it came in a plastic container. Will definitely go back

The place to be on Friday night. $1.00 beer till 9PM(Closing). Almost any kind of Japanese food is available. Seating is a little tight, but we found seats. Prices for Honolulu can't be beat.

I love this place, you can get ramen, gyoza's, mochi, beer, pretty much anything Japanese. I love it, it feels like you are in Asia.

There are several different places to eat in Shirokiya, all clustered together. The style is reminiscent of large department stores in Japan. All of the selections that my family had were very good, at reasonable prices. Judging by the crowd there on a recent weeknight, others also feel the same way. A great value!

Going to Shirokiya has always been a must for my family when visiting Honolulu. What used to be an authentic Japanese department store has changed over the years. It no longer carries the imported kitchen gear, electronics, toys, etc. that once made it so interesting. It has, however, remained interesting by incorporating the most authentic Japanese food found outside Japan.... More

Such a good variety of Japanese foods available at one spot. With our family, we always plan at least a couple meals here when on Oahu. We ate there a couple times last week with 9 family members and almost all had food from different vendors.
